Arel is just a syntax tree for SQL. It doesn't strictly give you any more power than SQL - I think your question is a little bit disingenuous, as you knew this already - but code manipulating syntax trees is better for query dynamism than code manipulating strings that don't have further typing.

No, it was quite genuine. I am not deeply familiar with Arel.
